Water Management Training
Post-acute and long-term care facilities provide care and services to vulnerable populations who may become critically ill when steps are not taken to reduce the risk of waterborne diseases. Healthcare facilities are integral to the health and well-being of the communities and residents they serve. In order to maintain daily operations and care services, healthcare facilities need to develop an effective water management plan to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a total or partial interruption of the facility’s normal water supply. The water management course will provide post-acute and long-term care facilities with information on what a water management plan is, how to identify the elements of an effective water management program, and how to develop and maintain a comprehensive water management program in your facility.
Audience: appropriate for both NF, as is required by regulation, and as best practices for AL.
- Describe what a water management plan is.
- Identify elements of an effective water management program.
- Discuss how to develop and maintain a comprehensive water management program for your facility.
